Pornography problems at work harm companies, coworkers | Deseret News

Read about the very serious harms of pornography use at work! Via Compulsion Solutions (@porndoc & @craigperra) ~ Scary but illuminating, and very important to be aware of!

[Deseret News] [Excerpt] Often companies don’t know, especially if the work environment promotes closed office doors and little colleague interaction, or if it’s a male-dominated office. Because while pornography can snag women, “this problem among men is considerable and growing,” said Quentin Schultze, a professor of communication arts and sciences at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., and author of “Habits of the High-Tech Heart: Living Virtuously in the Information Age.” “It seems that society really doesn’t want to address it.”

Yet companies and even the US government are being forced to address it, first because of the security concerns it presents.

In 2010, the Boston Globe broke the story that senior staff at the Pentagon were using work computers to view child pornography. In April, a dozen Secret Service agents were accused of hiring prostitutes while in Colombia preparing for President Barack Obama, who was to attend an economic summit there. Investigation into the Colombia event brought up prior federal employee misdeeds, including allegations of leaked sensitive information, sexual assault and published pornography.

More recently, Pentagon Missile Defense Agency executive director John James Jr. had to remind employees and contractors not to look at X-rated sites at work.

“These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources, and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code,” James wrote in the July memo obtained by Bloomberg.

Adult sites are often loaded with malware and viruses and can open up businesses to costly bugs or hackers. But when government agents with security clearances view pornography on unsecure sites, the stakes are exponentially higher, with a potential for national security breaches.
